|A Prompt Response
What is this recent outbreak of contests demanding that we invent our own prompts? It seems decidedly irrational to me. Obviously, I can’t speak for everyone else, but the reason I go hunting for prompts is because I’m low on inspiration and require just a little input from elsewhere to get the old engine fired up on a cold and inhospitable Monday morning. Or any other morning, when you’re as old as I am.
So to ask that I first devise a prompt before writing to it is like offering stone soup to a starving beggar. Or maybe I just think that because I’m lousy at making up prompts.
